Baylor Vs. Texas A&M: Who Can Stop The Bleeding?

New, 1 comment

Both the Baylor Bears and Texas A&M Aggies are reeling. A&M has lost two straight and three of their last four. Baylor has lost two of their last three.

The one thing that both teams have that can help patch the wounds are offensive stars.

For Baylor LLaceDarius Dunn is the conference's leading scorer at 20.7 points per game. Though the long guard is scoring in droves, it appears that he gets a lot of his points during "junk time' when games seem out of reach. For the Bears to fully utilize him, Dunn needs to start scoring when it matters, and carry Baylor on his shoulders.

Speaking of carrying on shoulders, Texas A&M's Khris Middleton is one of only two Aggies to average double figures. In their loss to Texas on Big Monday Middleton scored zero points. Yes, that's zero with a "0." And it's not like this is the first time the sophomore has disappeared this season. In an overtime victory against Mizzou, Middleton scored 15 in the first half, but it took him until the waning seconds of regulation before he registered another point.

So this one seems easy to forecast. Whichever star gets out early will lead their team to victory. If you see Lace hitting shots early or Middleton driving the lane, then you can be certain their team will come out with the win.
